So as I can see, there has to be something wrong with the installer: I looked up the error report and it seems plain to me that the installer is attempting to launch an Internet connection to send some statistics, yet I am using the offline installer so I don't see why.
Hi Lorenzo,

Offline installation is officially no longer supported on Vista and XP because new CEF (only one bundled in offline installer because of size) is not supported there and the online installer will download the correct CEF version.

I haven't had any issue installing the offline installer with my XP system, of course I was connected to the internet whilst installing. So we really need clarification on this also.

Both should work, but as you said, you need to be connected.

Yes, it is just confusing when it is said that the offline installer doesn't work on XP and Vista.

I'm just about to run the offline installer now on my XP system.

What's new/fixed:
  • New dialogs for malware detections
  • Offline installation of Avast works without network
  • Loading of some websites no longer blocked by Web Shield

Well, that's the official statement from the team (for now).
I already asked if it changed in the latest beta (https://forum.avast.com/index.php?msg=1412941).

Clarity avoids much confusion. :)

Thank you all!
This far, what I understand is that the Offline installer won't work on systems running XP or Vista if not connected to the Internet. Which means that the Offline installer won't work online.   :o :o :o
This leaves me a bit perplexed, but what can I say -- if this is the state of things...

If you're unsure, run the online installer.

@Asyn
No, there is no possible way that computer can go online (no chance of any Internet connection whatsoever), so the only chance I have left is to abandon Avast.
Thanks for everything you did anyway, I really appreciated that.

OK, last version that works would be 17.3 then.

I would try the beta since it states that Network not needed.
If it doesn't work, nothing lost. :)
